So I am waiting at the airport to catch my flight back to the 7 feet of snow I have in my backyard, while it’s 50 here. I had the opportunity to join Canadian Sun News Network as a SOFREP collaborator at the 2014 Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC).
The feeling I got is a shift in the Republican Party (GOP) towards more Libertarian politics. Seems like there is a tendency to go into a more isolationism stance with Rand Paul being voted the most popular speaker of the 2014 CPAC, for a second year in a row.
Many of you might wonder what SOFREP was doing there, as we mostly cover military affairs. Well, I can tell you that the speaker’s main focus was Obamacare and how the Democrats were bad, but a few of them really got into how the American Government needs to regain the superpower status they acquired since WWII.
Former Ambassador to the UN John Bolton spoke early on Monday, delivering a strong statement about Ukraine’s situation. “We’re not going to get peace through weakness,” he said, in regards to the Russia situation.
